What is Mantra ?
Mantra’s are energy based sounds wherein speech is the essence. Chanting a word produces an actual physical vibration. We have to know the effect of this vibration to understand the meaning associated with it. This is first level of energy basis for words. Another level is intent. By intent we mean the mental intention. When this mental intention is associated with chanting, it influences the resultant effect. The third level is the Rhythm. When these words in the physical form coupled with mental intention are chanted with a rhythm, they have a long lasting effect. This is what mantra is.
